The Incomprehensible Weebland of Castelia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The High Council of Castelia with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 5.184 billion Castelians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Castelia City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Castelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,492 trillion mordons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 287,990 mordons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,160,635 per year while the poor average 47,759, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime is totally unknown. Castelia's national animal is the renard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Way of the Weeaboo.

Castelia is ranked 30,952nd in the world and 186th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Poor Incomes, with 47,759.57 Standard Monetary Units.
